Aging Bear



Monkey and the Engineer
June 4, 1970
Fillmore West

Happy sing-along start to Thursday night mellowness at the Winterland.
Nov. 17, 1971
Albuquerque Civic Auditorium

IMO you can always tell the headiness of a show by how much love and care and attention goes into songs like Deal &This is one is right on point
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
May 17, 1974
P.N.E. Coliseum

Classic,bouncy good time opener for this WOS show to start set 2. Great Jerry solo,but listen for Keith too.
April 17, 1971
Dillon Gym

Another concise loping good time rocker with Jerry singing beautifuly.
Johnny B. Goode
July 31, 1971
Yale Bowl, Yale University

Rip roaring out of Uncle John's Band and after a high octane 2nd set, how else to finish?


May 19, 1974
Portland Memorial Coliseum

Looking forward to the offficial Pacific Northwest box set with this show on it.
Monkey and the Engineer
June 4, 1970
Fillmore West

Apologies, I meant to say Fillmore West, not Winterland.
Cosmic Charlie
June 8, 1969
Fillmore West

This was the end of the show where the boys (excepting Pigpen) were so smashed on large quantities of acid that they barely could play(and indeed had to take a couple of hours lie down!) They bravely make a fairly good job of it, so kudos to the guys. It's actually pretty good for a '69 Cosmic .
Stella Blue
May 18, 1977
Fox Theatre

15 minutes of slow,wistful,thoughtful Stella Blue. Dreamy solos with a hint of echo, so the sound just swirls around. Mellow. A very fine Stella Blue.
Uncle John's Band
June 24, 1970
Capitol Theatre

Another 1970 acoustic gem from a superlatively psychedelic wonderland.
